Blackburn's Yakubu at heart of QPR blow-up between Fernandes, Warnock
Blackburn Rovers striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni had a big say in QPR's sacking of manager Neil Warnock yesterday.
Warnock was at loggerheads with owner Tony Fernandes over several targets, chief among them the Blackburn Rovers striker Yakubu, whom he wanted but Fernandes did not.
The pair had met at the end of last week to discuss transfer business. Warnock left the meeting feeling that his position had become untenable.
